A growing number of people across the U.S believe a wide-spread disaster is imminent.

This 3 hour module is meant to discuss how to defend an area, develop a holistic training regimen, and build a site security plan.
About the Instructor: John Lovell ‘the Warrior Poet’ is a tactics and firearms instructor as well as a public speaker. John is a former war veteran and Special Operations soldier, having served in 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. In addition to being a soldier, John served as a foreign Christian missionary.
